Extra password for certain maps within Dropbox

Extra password for certain maps within Dropbox

New member | Level 2

Hi!

I work at my office with several employees, they do work on my computer and in my Dropbox so now and then. Since I don't want them to be able to open/ see all maps, I'd very much like to be able to secure certain maps with another password.
So I never have to worry when I am out.

Is this possible? I would think it is! Hope so...

Cheers and thanks, 

Magali

Its a waste of time - they've always said this.

Dropbox is simply not intended, or designed, to be used on shared devices without even the simplest of security precautions in place (e.g. user accounts).

No it isnt.

Secure the computer itself rather than relying upon a third party syncing tool to do it.

Hi Mark,

 

That's a real pitty. like said: I do need to share this computer with colleagues, and it would be all ok if I could only extra-secure/ prtoect just a few maps on their own. Would this be something DropBox would like to look at to develop or is it a waste of time?
